After spending all day Saturday breaking up fights, even forcing my oldest to “go for a walk” after his escalating behavior, and putting my youngest in his room for a long extended reading time after he trashed his room in anger. I needed a break from the constant bickering and stress.
I had deadlines I needed to get done in my home office and I needed to work in an environment that was peaceful and stress free. Plus the husband was out of town so I was on my own.
I admit it, I was weak.
So today I lifted the ban on electronics for the entire day.
And it was pure bliss.
Sometimes you have to do what works.
Even if there’s shame involved.
